Only a dope could fail Blues - Redknapp

Published Add your comment

Anyone who takes over as manager of Chelsea and cannot be successful would have to be a dope, according to QPR manager Harry Redknapp.

Redknapp took over at Loftus Road just three days before Chelsea hired Rafael Benitez as their interim manager. The Spaniard was jeered by a large number of Chelsea fans following his previous associations with Liverpool but the Blues have now won their last four league matches after losing 3-1 at West Ham on December 1.

"He has walked into a squad of players there who are Champions League winners - you've got a chance, haven't you," said Redknapp. "You'd have to be a real dope to mess it up with that group of players - (Eden) Hazard, (Juan) Mata, (Frank) Lampard. He's a clever guy. Even in the West Ham game that they lost, they could have been out of sight at half-time."
